Young ICorr Look to the Future

In December, Young ICorr looked to the future with a festive spirit. Dr Bijan Kermani presented “Challenges and Future of the Discipline” expressing a positive outlook for the energy sector and how our niche sector of materials and corrosion will be vital in supporting a sustainable future. A key theme of Dr Kermani’s address was how we will inevitably rely on both innovation of materials and integrity management technologies, but also how we must maximise the economy and use of more common materials, such as carbon steel. It is a combination of the things that we have learned, and have yet to learn, that will shape the future of energy.

Taking advantage of the online forum, the talk was widely attended with participants from across the world. As it was Christmas, what better way to celebrate than with a Corrosion festive quiz with questions including the RAL number for Christmas Red? How small is the world’s smallest Christmas card? And what metal was tinsel first made from? Congratulation to the winners: team Dr Magnetite!
